A superb Federal mahogany sideboard, in the manner of John & Thomas Seymour, Boston, circa 1810-15.

This stunning sideboard has the excellent proportions and the finest vibrant mahogany veneers, typical of the premier Boston cabinet shop of John and Thomas Seymour. The father and son team of John and Thomas Seymour are the most celebrate Boston cabinetmaker of the Federal period. From the last decade of the 18th Century through the first quarter of the 19th Century they produced elegant furniture for Boston’s elite. The very specific form of the sideboard, with a shaped deck top above a central arch, has long been identified with their work. Additionally, the distinctive segmented reeding and turnings of the legs are identical to other labeled examples from the Seymour shop. The sideboard has both a dramatic form, with vivid mahogany veneers and an important attribution, which qualify it as an important example of Boston Federal furniture.

The sideboard has a pair of raised step-back drawers flanked by reeded balusters with outset corners, centering a concave paneled frieze with a raised and cross banded central block. This rests on a conforming top with a molded edge, above symmetrical drawers and cabinets. Four short drawers flank a raised central square drawer with a cross-banded edge above a carved foliate bracket. A pair of locking cabinets frame the large central arch that has book matched veneered brackets. The paneled interior of the arch is mahogany grain painted. The sideboard rests on six turned tapered and reeded legs.

Dimensions: Height 47 1/2”; Width 72 ¾”; Depth 25”
